What’s the PROYECTA Award?

The Ibero-American Textile Network established the PROYECTA Award for the first time in 2010, to be awarded every two years.  The objective is to encourage the preservation, research, dissemination, promotion or innovation of significant aspects of the textile culture, as understood in its triple function of heritage, creation and formation, favoring simultaneously an improvement in the standard of living and the sustainable development of the communities or collectives involved in the project, the cultural and technical knowledge exchange in a research-friendly environment, and the textile culture creation, innovation and dissemination among the general public.
